    Better cozy up to the prof, then...and whoever controls the situation. Oh, and you might have to move a lot closer...? LOL

    It would be nice if controlled releases were possible too...fingers crossed for their habitat. Sure helps to be 'remote'.
    Absolutely, I'd be thrilled to be part of a project like this even if it meant that any offspring had to be released once they got up to a certain size. Put me down for a group of 2.5.

    That's pretty awesome, I certainly hope they can keep it from becoming extinct.

    Wait, are you sure that silver boa isn't one of Ranger's 'sterlings' off on a vacation? (giggles)

    Very cool finds, I really hope it's not too late, & it's sad to think what deforestation has already destroyed in so many places.

    Too bad it's endangered, hopefully conservation efforts will be successful.
